Thanksgiving 2021

Once again, we plan to serve thousands of Thanksgiving meals in 2021, and we need your help now more than ever!

"We want to give a very good, home-style holiday to our homeless folks," said Nina Moseley, COO of Wayside Christian Mission.

Those living at the mission’s two campuses, including Hotel Louisville, will receive a traditional Thanksgiving meal, but in a limited, socially distanced setting.


Wayside usually serves around 3,000 meals -- including breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- on Thanksgiving.

“And, just like last year, we're going to serve grilled hamburgers, cheeseburgers and picnic-type food outside for those not staying here at Wayside Christian Mission,” Moseley added.

Due to Covid safety measures, Wayside volunteers will deliver the grilled food items to the homeless camps, rather than have people come into the shelter.

Moseley says the volunteers who serve the food, as well as the organizations and individuals who provide donations, make it all possible. “Without our volunteers in the community, we would not be able to put this on."

Wayside's services offer food and shelter to those who need it. Please help your Louisville neighbors with an act of kindness.
